WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. (WYMT) - Troopers with Kentucky State Police are investigating a single-truck crash on Interstate 75 in Whitley County, just north of the Tennessee border.

Troopers say an investigation determined that 32-year-old Robert Hamblin of Jellico, Tennessee was travelling on I-75 in a 2008 Ford F-150 pickup when he lost control of his vehicle, and ran off the right side of the roadway and ran into a hillside.

The pickup overturned and Hamblin was thrown from the vehicle. He suffered life-threatening injuries, and was pronounced dead at the scene by the Whitley County Coroner’s Office.
